Recently signed to Canadian record label Birthday Cake, founded by The Bros. Landreth, Georgia continues to solidify her position on the international stage. Her debut album 'Deep Black Water' gained a feature in NME, music video on MTV, heavy rotation on SiriusXM North Americana (US), BBC Radio 2 play and a feature session on BBC Radio 4's Loose Ends.
"My debut album, 'Deep Black Water' feels like a true culmination of my work as an artist. It authentically reflects the rawness and honesty of life and moulds this with soulful, carefully layered music. My sound is difficult to box into one genre, and I'm proud of that. It is born from my rich experience with music, and marries the country and folk influences of my childhood with my vast vocal experience in classical, soul and jazz. The songs you hear are my own, as is the production, so this album is truly a little piece of me". - Georgia
Originally from Melbourne, Australia, van Etten packed one tiny suitcase six years ago and headed for the U.K. Impressively, she has played the likes of Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), Porretta Soul Festival (Italy), Falls Festival (Australia), Ealing Blues Festival (UK) and headlined London Omeara.
Her debut EP ‘Live at the Pool Studio’ had extensive BBC Radio 2 play with Jamie Cullum remarking “This really blew me away when I first heard it” and Blues & Soul Magazine UK declaring “Put simply, this is a damn fine EP”. The EP also sparked attention surrounding van Etten’s unique mouth trumpet impression with a clip going viral on media giant UNILAD SOUND.
